What I Ate: October 30, 2010 (Thai Passion)

Dinner: Thai Passion (Ste A400, 9300 S I H 35, Austin, TX (512) 382-0057). Started with the Pou-Peer Sod soft spring rolls. We ordered shrimp, but they were out of it so they asked if we'd take tofu, so we agreed.

Then we had an order of Rice Balls (Fried jasmine rice mixed with red curry, lime leaf, and coconut. Served with chili and plum sauce.) which we ended up liking a lot. I like the crispy texture of the fried rice ball exterior and the soft flavorful rice within.

Green curry with beef - Gang-Keow-Warn. The meat was a bit chewy, but overall I thought it went fairly well with rice.

Their Pud Thai which we had with chicken was pretty bland, but I ended up eating most of it since I was in the mood for rice noodles.

Overall, I thought the food was better tasting than Madam Mam's (mainly because I think all the food at Madam Mam's is overly sweet). We still miss good Thai food in general though.

  • Those rice balls sound right up my alley!

  • You've got to try the dish with the ground pork at Madam Mam's (it's the only dish they have with ground pork). Not sweet at all, and really tasty!

  • If we find ourselves at Madam Mam's again, I'll have to remember to try the ground pork dish.
